Question about D-Link DIR-625 (790069292637) Wireless Router
I just hooked up my the D-link dir 615 to he desktopt that has broadband cable internet access. I bout a Netgear wireless wg111v2 adapter for the desktop downstairs as I want to setup a wireless network in the house and be able to acess the high speed cable internet from another computer. Unfortunately, the second computer is having problems accessing the network. Should I have bought a different adapter? I installed all the software and the main computer shows the other one as being part of the network but it is showing as 'offline' but the power is own. Can anyone give me advice on how to get the other desktop up and running?
Please understand as I get very basic to start but things very obvious to you I cannot see.
Generally when including a router in a home network starting from the cable (tv) or the phone socket (dsl) in the wall with a phone wire plugged in. The next box is generally provided by your internet service provider and is a modem/something that connects to the phone line or cable. Then sometimes when only one computer exists computers are directly connected to the modem with an ethernet cable (looks like a fat phone wire with oversize connectors) or a USB cable (small flat retangular ends).
When you want to add a router for multiple computers. The computer gets disconnected. If a USB cable was used it is often replaced with an ethernet cable and that cable connects to the WAN port (probably separate from a block of 4 lan ports) of the router you bought (tell me if you have two routers -- that is a different problem). If your service comes from a cable (tv) company your router may already be properly configured. If however you have DSL service from the phone company the chances your router is correctly configured are less. To finish with the cabling story -- your computer then hooks to one of probably 4 LAN ports all in a block. Now if you are lucky power on all devices and boot up your computer and see if you have internet access. If you do great if not please provide me the name of your internet service provider or a link to their help/support website and I will see what I can do to assist in completing the router setup. Until your wired computer gets access to the internet your girls wireless connections will not work either. Once we get the wired connection working we will address the wireless connections.
If necessary unplug the router and plug the computer back into the original cable until we get the router working.
